Originally from Portland, Oregon, Sarah Boardman is a dancer, teacher, and choreographer currently based in Orange County, California. After years of dabbling in various performing arts including acting, singing, and playing the piano, flute, and violin, she began her dance training at the age of eleven and swiftly fell in love with moving. In May of 2019 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from Chapman University, where she had the honor of training with and performing works by Jennifer Backhaus, Julianne O’Brien, and Liz Maxwell.
During her collegiate career, she had the opportunity to present five original choreographic works, as well as many more outside of the university setting. She has received multiple choreographic honors, including the Chapman University Dance Department award for Outstanding Choreography in 2018 and 2019, and the award for Outstanding Choreography at Spotlight Dance Cup in Portland, Oregon.
Professionally, Sarah has performed at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim for many years and appeared as a featured dancer on two episodes of CBS’s The Bold and The Beautiful. Sarah is dedicated to the production of interesting, thought-provoking work, creating holistic learning experiences, and insisting upon kindness and authenticity in an often strident industry, both from herself and those she works with.
